Original oil on canvas (36 1/2" by 28 1/2") by Maurice Esnault aka Joannes (French, 1854-1940). This painting appears to date from the 1920's. It is fully signed l.l. It also bears a gallery label from the famed Ferargil Gallery (a major early 20th Century New York gallery) which states the name of the artist and the fact that it came from the Rene Gimpel collection. It also bears 3 estate? labels, and a French customs stamp. Rene Gimpel (1897-1957) was a famous French-Jewish art dealer and collector between the wars whose journal ("Diary of an Art Dealer"--"Journal d'un Collectionneur, Marchand de Tableaux") was published in 1966. Maurice Esnault is well listed (Benezit, Artprice, Artnet, etc. and known for his modernist landscapes and flowers.
